  • "The Seaside Retreat has everything needed for a comfortable holiday and was spotlessly clean."

    Although it sleeps 6, we found it comfortable for 4, with only 4 seats in the lounge and at the dining table (each bench comfortably seating 2). There is no welcome pack at this property, so ensure you have the basics with you on arrival. The back garden is fully fenced which gave us total peace of mind with our two dogs. My only issue was with the mattress in the front bedroom. When I stripped the bed on the last morning, I was shocked to find the mattress badly stained and discoloured. It was so old the writing on the label had worn off. I have written to the owner about this, so hopefully it will be replaced immediately.

    Thank you for your feedback. There are two dining chairs (blue and cream) in the property for your to pull round to the dining table if there are six of you at the property. There is a hard copy of the welcome pack at the property, however i do email an electronic copy to all guests the week before their stay. We have arranged for our cleaning company to throughly clean the mattress whilst we seek a replacement - thank you for bringing it to our attention. Property Owner

  • "A pleasant stay, a few cobwebs about."

    Inadequate seating in dining area.

    Thank you. I have passed your feedback on to the cleaners regarding the cobwebs. I am glad you had a pleasant stay. Property Owner

  • "A nice well located property, the back Garden is the best Dog friendly Garden we have stayed in."

    Very Comfortable overall, the Kitchen / Diner is a great family space too. An outside light to the Garden would be an improvement. We would recommend the property to our friends and family.

    Thanks for your feedback, and take your comments on board. We are so glad you had a lovely stay. Property Owner

  • "We had a wonderful week at the seaside retreat."

    A very clean and comfortable cottage which,although in a quiet residential area, was also only a couple of minutes walk to shops, restaurants and takeaways. The kitchen had everything required to cook nice meals . The enclosed garden was great for the dog and the weather was good enough for us to enjoy a drink on the patio. It was also very close to the beach where we had many lovely walks. We would recommend this property to anyone wanting a relaxing holiday with everything in easy reach. We would love to return in the future.

    Thank you very much for your lovely feedback - its really appreciated. I am so glad you had a lovely holiday. Property Owner

  • "We had a great time at the bungalow."

    It was spacious, well equipped and in a great location that was peaceful yet close to the seafront. Sutton was very quiet probably due to different half-term dates but perfect for a short getaway with our dog.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are glad you had a great time! Property Owner

  • "Disappointed that the ensuite shower was not working."

    We did message the owner who replied quickly but was unable to rectify. With 6 of us staying washing in the morning was problematic with only one shower, especially as you needed to step over the bath. Thus we left early a day early. Otherwise we found the property comfortable and well equipped, other than the feedback previously given regards to the fridge and door handles. I believe the owner is aware and is seeking to resolve these issues. I would also advise that the lightbulbs are checked in the living room as we found that only one lamp worked thus making the area quite dark at night.

    Thank your feedback. We are sorry the electrician could not come to look at the electric shower at the weekend. However, he did go on Monday to find the isolation switch had been turned off, so the shower had no electrical power. There is now a free standing fridge in the kitchen and the kitchen door handles are being changed this November. Property Owner

  • "Nicely refurbished cottage in a good position."

    However, several problems,some of which had been mentioned many times before and should have been sorted by now,namely the fridge and door knob problems. Other problems included the garden being totally overgrown and the windows being very dirty.Also insufficient instructions were available for heating/hot water and other kitchen goods.The cleaning was very superficial in that on closer inspection undersheets and throw cover were stained.

    Thank you for your feedback. After your visit I inspected the property due to the number of issues you had, which, where possible, were rectified during your stay. There is now a stand alone fridge in the kitchen and the kitchen door handles are being changed this November. The gardener comes every Friday to cut the grass, keep on top of the weeds and any leaves that have fallen. The garden was not overgrown when I inspected last week. There is a welcome pack left out for every guest, which clearly explains how to work kitchen appliances/boiler, and guests have my number if there are any other problems. With regards to the cleaning, I have thoroughly checked the level of cleaning and am satisfied it is done to a high standard. The mattress protectors and throws had no stains and are cleaned regularly. Property Owner

  • "The property was loverly, well maintained in a nice quite street."

    Short walk from the shops and sea. The only problems which have been mentioned by others, is the fridge is to small and the cupboard handles are to hard to use for elderly people

    Thank you for your feedback and hope you had a lovely stay. Property Owner

  • "We really enjoyed our holiday to Sutton on Sea."

    The house was really well placed and clear to see it’s very recently been renovated. Just some niggles that made the stay towards the end a little uncomfortable. The choice of kitchen cupboard handles made it almost impossible to open the dishwasher! Really recommend replacing those. The fridge really isn’t suitable for any number of people let alone the 5 of us. A free standing fridge would be a welcome addition! The lack of towels, luckily I brought some with me otherwise we would have struggled. And the sofas in the living room are really narrow and uncomfortable. Maybe some footstools might help for those with longer legs (we are a short family anyway and were still uncomfortable). Unfortunately, a large stain was left by the previous tenants in the living room. We had to keep the boys away from the area the whole holiday.

    Thank you for your feedback. We take on board the comments with regard to the kitchen handles and fridge. The handles are being changed and a larger free standing fridge is going to be put in the kitchen this November. With regards to the shortage of towels, every guest is given a hand towel and bath towel for their stay. Sorry to hear you found the sofas uncomfortable, we haven't had any complaints about this before. Unfortunately, the previous guest did not let us know about the stain in the corner of the living room, however I did contact you at the very start of your holiday to let you know about this and also arranged for the cleaners to go back to remove the stain Property Owner

  • "A fantastic holiday home, ideally located for all the facilities in Sutton on Sea."

    Immaculately clean, comfortable, safe, incredibly quiet with everything you really need for a relaxing holiday. The only criticism would be the fridge is way too small for 4 adults & 2 kids. We are planning a return very soon. Many Thanks Sykes... you did it again...!!
